* Nagash is one of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}s'' biggest douchbags, and likely the single most evil person in the setting. He still has a vested interest against Chaos destroying the world however, and so for a good chunk of the lore he's technically been a "good guy". The quote marks are very much justified, and in TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar it's no real surprise when he finally gives in to his baser urges. It's fair to say he was only prevented from betraying everyone in TabletopGame/WarhammerTheEndTimes because one of the other "Why are we friends with this guy again?" characters betrayed ''him'' before he had the chance.

* ''FanFic/{{Fade}}'': [[spoiler:Beyond Birthday]]. The only reason he bothers opposing Kira is because he hates L, who has become Kira in his attempts to stop the original's rise to power. It's implied that if L ''hadn't'' become Kira, he would've sided with the original instead just to get back at L.

[[spoiler:Once Light enters the picture and becomes L's partner (mainly due to a combination of attraction and StockholmSyndrome), Beyond's motivation goes from "stop L" to "stop L and save Light" in quick fashion]].

* The entire party in ''VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria'' except for Laphicet and Eleanor are fighting for personal reasons instead of some noble cause. Velvet is driven by revenge, Rokurou wants to kill someone from his past, Eizen's target is part of the enemy group, and Magilou's along for the ride because she's bored and wants to see how things turn out.

* Most of the Vault Hunters in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' are not particularly upstanding people. Axton is motivated by money, [[GloryHound glory]] and the chance of a worthy enemy; [[TheSpook insofar as anything about Zer0 is nailed down]], it's that he likes to kill things; Gaige isn't all the way sane; and Krieg is [[TheBerserker a rampaging murder machine]].

* In the first three ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' games, an evil player character could be seen as this, since you have the freedom to blow of civilianís heads with absolutely zero provocation, enslave children and nuke cities. However, this is somewhat moderated by the main story pitting you against monsters who want to wipe out the vast majority of the remaining human race. With ''New Vegas'', the player has the option of becoming a full-blown VillainProtagonist by siding with Caesarís Legion, as they bring the region under the grip of a nation endorsing rape, slavery, child molestation and murder for public entertainment.

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'': Taiga Hanaya/Kamen Rider Snipe, who fights against the Bugsters not because he cares about the patients or their lives. He just wants to collect all the Gashats so can he destroy all the Bugsters and get his revenge on Graphite. He also doesn't care about who gets hurt because of his actions.

** Matt, despite being third in line to succeed L, doesn't seem terribly interested in the Kira case, and to have only gotten involved in it [[OnlyFriend for Mello's sake]].
** There are actually hints that L himself fits into the Boredom category and doesn't so much care for justice as he does for the challenge, and thus distraction, a case will provide him. The fact that he only takes on cases with at least a certain amount of people murdered, or those that personally interest him, supports that, as well as the fact that the authors have said many times that L and Light are [[NotSoDifferent two sides of the same coin]]. Light was bored out of his mind, found the Death Note, and with it something to sufficiently distract himself from the ennui of his daily life. L, who, as the world's top three detectives, has been shown several times to [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem not care about playing by the rules]] if it furthers his cases, thereby keeping him occupied the same way Light does; only he's still only the good side of the law because of his detective status--even if sometimes that's only because there's simply ''no one above him'' to reign him in.
